Dictionary of the Queer International proposes a vision of international, intersectional, and non-hierarchical queer culture via imaginary queer defense fusion-languages. The dictionary is a collection of words and phrases from local queer languages around the world. It considers the concept of a queer language of “internationalist universality” as opposed to “neoliberal globalization” — a vision of an international queer language of multi-locality and horizontality.
Definitions of queer defense language terms collected from contributors in Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lebanon, Mexico, Pakistan, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbai, Slovakia, Sweden, Syria, Turkey, Tunisia, the United Kingdom, the United States, Venezuela, and others. Foreword by Yevgeniy Fiks; introductory essay by Evgeny Shtorn.
